1998 Nicolas Feuillatte "Palmes d'Or" Brut Champagne

SKU #1050675

90 points Wine Spectator: "A mix of apricot, dried cherry and lemon aromas and flavors are sharply etched, and there's a grainy texture to this bubbly, which has intensity, even if it is a bit chunky. Drink now through 2018." (Web only, 2009) 90 points Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1998 Brut Cuvee Palmes d’Or is a sexy drink. While not a blockbuster, the wine reveals an engaging, harmonious personality. The open, inviting bouquet leads to an expressive, generous core of fruit with pretty notes of early tertiary character that add complexity. Brioche, hazelnuts, dried pears and dried apricots linger on a long, beautifully articulated finish. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2014." (12/09) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This Palmes d’Or style is used to create a wine rather than a Champagne. It works here, the structure and the toast all giving a mouthfeel of Burgundy. The acidity of course is characteristic of Champagne, but it is well integrated into the yeast, the green stone fruits and the pink grapefruit freshness." (12/1/2008) 89 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid gold with a steady bead. Honey, pear and buttered toast on the nose, with a slow-building floral quality. Lush, palate-coating orchard and pit fruit flavors are braced by gentle minerality and complemented by a note of smoky lees. On the rich side, but with good finishing grip and sweet persistence. I'd drink this over the next few years as it appears fully mature." (Nov/Dec '09)
